Ice Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Crust

Happy 2024 to everyone!  

My son Mike had a birthday on NYE and I made a family favorite which is ice cream pie with peanut butter crust.  This used to be my late hubby's favorite, also, and the whole family loves it.  I'm sipping on some Hojicha Sticky Toffee Pudding tea that my friend, Margie, from Tea in the Valley sent me.  I had never tried Hojicha teas, which means roasted green tea, and this one also had black and rooibos tea along with other ingredients.  It was very tasty!  

Using my Royal Albert Snowdrops January teacup seemed perfect for this cold day.

My sweet little Goebel sledders, a years ago gift from my Dad, always grace my table after Christmas.  Their faces make me smile. 

This little guy was also a gift from my Dad, who loved picking out his own gifts.

This is so soooo good!

Ice Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Crust

Ice Cream Pie with Peanut Butter Crust

This is a family favorite that I've made so often, and is many times requested for birthdays, and is loved by everyone. I did a low fat version of this for a Kellogg's Low Fat Granola recipe contest in 1995 and won 2nd place and $3, 000.00 and was able to take my family on a cruise.


  • 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream, softened in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 1/2 c. light corn syrup
  • 2 1/4 c. oven-toasted rice cereal
  • For the Hot Fudge Sauce:
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 t. vanilla


  1. Mix the peanut butter, and the corn syrup together in a bowl. Add the crisp rice cereal and mix well. Pat into the bottom of a 9 x 13" pan. Add 1/2 of the ice cream & smooth out on top of the crust. Put in the freezer for 1 hour. Put the rest of the ice cream in the fridge to use later.
  2. In the meantime, make the hot fudge sauce:
  3. In a 2 qt. saucepan over medium heat, cook sugar, cocoa, heavy whipping cream, corn syrup & butter until mixture is smooth & boils, stirring constantly. Remove from heat & stir in vanilla. Cool fudge sauce slightly.
  4. Pour 1 1/4 cups fudge sauce over the ice cream. Return to freezer & freeze about 20 minutes.
  5. Take dessert out of freezer & spread the remainder of the ice cream on top. Drizzle remainder of fudge sauce over the top. Sometimes I need to re-heat the sauce a little in order to drizzle it.
  6. Cover dessert & return to freezer. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.
  7. When ready to serve, let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  8. Makes 12-15 servings, depending on size of slice


I sometimes make two smaller ones, such as a 9"x 9" pan and a pie pan.

Thank you for your visit!  xo
